FRSC deploys 65 personnel for Katagum, Ningi LGA rerun election

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has deployed 65 personnel to ensure orderliness during the February 3 election rerun in Bauchi.

FRSC sector commander in Bauchi, Patrick Ikaba, said this in an interview on Friday.

The Appeal Court has ordered an election rerun in 42 polling units in four state assembly constituencies (Bauchi Central, Zungur/Galambi, Ningi 1 and Madara/Chinade).

Also, on Thursday, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) distributed sensitive materials and trained over 200 ad-hoc personnel for the exercise. 

Mr Ikaba said the personnel would work in synergy with other security agencies to ensure orderliness and smooth conduct of the election.

“They are also to make sure that no infiltrator or people with bad intentions gain access to the polling units,” he said.

According to him, the FRSC collaborates with sister agencies to ensure free, fair and credible elections and maintain peace and order in the state.
